October 2017 – Week 3 – Solidarity

Check out the Youth Page


The third week of October we focus on the principle of solidarity. Solidarity recognizes that human persons do lot live in isolation. We are social beings by our very nature and are born into relationship with all other people.

Solidarity seeks to ensure that the relationship we have with one another is just, charitable, and respects the dignity of all. (The combined run-time of all videos below is about 15 minutes)

After watching the videos discuss ways in which solidarity can be more prevalent in your parish and community. Are there people or areas that you are leaving out of your ministries?
